Bettinardi Golf Celebrates 20th Anniversary

20 Years ago today was the birth of Bettinardi Golf. Since their inception Bettinardi Golf has been in the bags of champions past and present.

In 2018 alone, Bettinardi Golf catapulted Francesco Molinari to his first Major victory, emerging Chinese superstar Haotong Li won the Omega Dubai Desert Classic with a putter from Bettinardi Golf and last but not least long-time Bettinardi Golf stalwart Matt Kuchar clinched the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico.

I’m looking forward to visiting with Bettinardi Golf at the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando. Happy 20th Anniversary Bettinardi Golf!! Here’s to at least 20 more. Please click on the link to see a short video celebrating their anniversary.

Thanks go out to Nicholas Martini for sharing.

20th Anniversary

 

Expand The Brand

The 2019 PGA Merchandise Show is getting closer and with it my excitement is building. It’s going to be fun as it always is networking with like-minded individuals and golf manufacturers. But there is a real sense of change in the air and it’s a change that I’m excited about.

In 2019, I’m going to be expanding the brand. This year in Orlando I will be accompanied by my wife Crystal. Crystal has been my biggest supporter through my golf journey and through the last 20+ years of my life for that matter. Whether it was playing professionally on Mini-Tours, working long hours and work weeks while I served as a Director of Golf or putting up with my lack of attention while she talked as I wrote.

Earlier this year (after the 2018 PGA Show) I said to Crystal that she could come as long as she was a good girl. I admit, that while I travel to Florida every year for the show I do use it as a chance to get away and have some special “Me Time”. I promise that it isn’t as selfish as it sounds. The idea of me being accompanied this year really came to fruition because there was no way that she’d be comfortable with me attending the PGA Show by myself after my stroke.

Not sure where I’d be without her. Crystal and I earlier this year in Vermont.

Crystal is going to be there assisting in several ways. Quite frankly, the show has gotten to be too busy for me by myself. So being the skilled photographer that she is she will be my photographer and videographer. More importantly, as a way to cover more show she’ll be visiting with Women’s Apparel brands etc and contributing with some writing about those brands that she discovers. It’s time that we (golf blogs etc) start paying more attention to women’s golf. After all, it is a massive portion of the golfer demographic.

Building on a lot of momentum in 2018 there is more to come. Coming in 2019 is a change in the plan that I use here at WordPress. At the moment, I’m using a plan that doesn’t allow me to do what I would truly love Until The Next Tee to become. An upgraded plan will allow for more video coverage, a forum format (I want this to become a Golf Community) and I’ve recently considered attempting a podcast as well.

So stay tuned. 2019 is going to be fun.

Until The Next Tee!!

Indi Golf Wedges Now Available in Left-Handed Versions

 

Indi Golf Wedges Now Available in Left-Handed Versions

_______________________________________________________________________________

 

VISTA, CA, November 16, 2018– Indi Golf, design and manufacturer of high-performance golf clubs, introduces new left-handed StingRay and StingRay TT wedges featuring optimal spin, control and forgiveness. The wedges are available for pre-order starting November 15, 2018, with shipping beginning in early December.

 

“After receiving numerous requests for left-handed versions of our wedges, we are happy to introduce them in time for Christmas,” said Rob Lang, General Manager, Indi Golf. “We are committed to designing quality products that will help golfers perform at their best and enjoy the game more and now everyone can add forgiveness and spin to their wedge game.”

StingRay wedges are engineered with TractionFace technology, which uses a proprietary open square groove shape and pattern to create tremendous backspin and optimal launch conditions.  These aggressive box grooves increase spin by 50% and are so effective that StingRay exceeds the performance limits outlined in the Rules of Golf, making them ideal for recreational golfers. StingRay TT remixes TractionFace technology with another revolutionary groove shape and pattern to optimize launch and increase backspin by 20% on a full swing while Conforming to the Rules of Golf.

 

Both wedges feature Indi Golf’s proprietary ScoopBack design to create maximum forgiveness by moving mass higher in the face, and toward the toe.  This optimizes the location of the club’s CG, making the head more stable on off-center contact, helping shots feel better, go straighter, spin more and end up closer to the hole.  The ScoopBack design is not a muscle back or perimeter-weighted design but is a combination that brings the player the best of both worlds.

 

Other features of the wedges designed to improve performance include:

  • ShortHosel – Creates discretionary weight that has been position higher in the face and more towards the toe, resulting in higher performance, better feel, and more forgiveness.
  • Optimized Bounce – Allows the head to glide through the turf yielding solid contact for the grooves to grab the ball and impart maximum spin while producing ideal launch conditions.
  • LaunchControl – A lower launch and higher spin combination allows golfers to be more aggressive and reduces the influence of elements on the ball.
  • Straight Leading Edge – Makes the wedge easier to align, giving a player more confidence and resulting in more consistent shots.

The left-handed StingRay TT and StingRay wedges are available in lofts of 52, 56 and 60. The StingRay TT right-handed wedge is available in lofts of 46, 48, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58 and 60-degrees, and conforms with the Rules of Golf. The StingRay right-handed wedge is available in lofts of 50, 52, 54, 56, 58 and 60-degrees, and does not conform with the Rules of Golf. MSRP is $159.99.
